For Master Wolf Man only
Master I have this '09 Tiguan
Problem was that timing chain tensioner failed and all valves on cylinder head got bent
So this guys replaced the entire timing change set and had the cylinder head redone
After they finish putting everything back together engine started fine about 3 times but the fourth time engine did not restart and there is no compression in all cylinders
Now it's my turn to try to figure this out anything that you might know about this engines after you put them back together
The cylinder head is back out and all valves are fine new components of timing change seems to be fine
Can you help on this one bud thanks a lot

Let me tell you but these guys are a bunch of idiots they couldn't figure out why this thing was out time and I found the problem for them now I'm sending you pictures of the crank it seems to me to be fine okay but just see it yourself and tell me what do I need to do to install that piece that gear back on it
Thanks Master

replace the lower gear !!! then install with new crank bolt but use the old bolt first to hold the gear together with the crank when placing chain on the cams and the gear!!
